Former Harford County Councilman Lance Miller was sentenced to 11 months in jail after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, according to court records.
Miller entered the plea Monday, one day before he was scheduled to go to trial on a total of four charges: one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute; one count of possession of marijuana; one count of possession of paraphernalia; and one count of common nuisance.
In exchange for the plea deal, all charges but the first were dropped. Miller was sentenced to a total of 5 years in jail with all but 11 months suspended, and will also face four years of probation upon his release. He is scheduled to begin serving his sentence on April 23.
Miller, 45, whose address in court records was listed as a residence in the 1900 block of Trappe Church Road in Darlington, was charged Nov. 12 after he was found with more than two pounds of marijuana in his possession.
